Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 3.25.02 PM

Four young pals set out to have a great time in Las Vegas, but soon all bets are off in the one-of-a-kind sci-fi thriller comedy Unidentified. It arrives on Digital Download and DVD from MPI/Dark Sky Films on February 11, 2014.

Unidentified, the feature directorial debut of Jason R. Miller (co-producer and second-unit director of the hit horror films Hatchet 2 and Frozen), cleverly mixes sci-fi, suspense and laughs to create a truly unique take on an otherworldly encounter.

During a wild weekend in Las Vegas, four young friends get into trouble with a loan shark and must skip town in a hurry. But gambling debts may be the least of their worries after they get stranded in the vast Nevada desert. One of the guys discovers a mysterious metal fragment and then promptly goes missing during the night. When the remaining three catch up with their lost friend, they notice something oddly different about him. As his condition worsens, the others realize that some unearthly being may be stalking them in the wilderness.

Unidentified stars Parry Shen (the Hatchet franchise, Better Luck Tomorrow), Colton Dunn (Key and Peele), Eddie Mui (Call Back) and Eric Artell (Pair of Kings). Parry Shen and Eddie Mui are also the producers, along with director Jason R. Miller.

Special features on the DVD will include: Commentary with Writer-Director Jason R. Miller, Jodieman YouTube Videos, Unidentified Space Cam, and the Trailer.

Here’s the official trailer and art!

    So this is supposed to be kinda funny right? If it’s not at least part comedy I have to say it looks really bad. I just couldn’t tell from the trailer…if it is going to be a horror comedy I can see the appeal as to how it will be funny and glad they didn’t ruin all of the funny parts in the trailer like most films.

    Looks interesting, but that poster looks like a game poster for C64…

    Antidepressants and other psychotics take about a month or so to start working. So I recommend all who starred or acted in this, um, film(?), to start taking them now before the release of the, um, movie(?), so that you don’t cause any harm to yourselves upon release of this, um, thing?

    Okay, just watched it twice, and it looks a lot more interesting and creative than the majority of found footage shit out there. I’m interested to see this one, looks like it could be fun.

    Also, curious about why there’s so much attention drawn to how many viewers the main character is getting. I wonder if it’s going to say something about how the aliens are accessing the internet, and if the main character’s being targeted specifically.

    I gotta say… i prefer Alien Abduction, wich, by the way, should be in a list of “horror movies more people should watch” or something. I´m starting to hate every found footage crap that comes out lately, and this doesn´t seem like the next gem of horror; plus, mixing comedy with horror sounds like a really bad idea to me, sorry but that never works

      which “Alien Abduction” film are you talking about? There is a few of em while searching on youtube. I found a new documentary trailer and the old school “McPherson Tape” etc. Do you have a youtube link to confirm which film you are talking about? thanks
